Importing Catalogue From Vistex's Counterpoint

To facilitate onboarding onto Curve from Counterpoint's Music Maestro system, we have created an Importer tool that automatically populates your Curve client based on just a few Counterpoint exports.

How to Export Your Data From Counterpoint

Altogether you will need 6 export files from the Maestro Data Gateway.

Catalogue Shipment – Reports> export custom reports > Catalogue shipment excel export.
Rates Export – Reports> client > rates
Composers Export – Composer manager > right-click publish to excel; Then organise the columns into the correct sequence.
Publishers Export – Publisher manager > right-click publish to excel
Balances – These are exported from Data Gateway > Export > Client Balances > Search > Right click on the information that has appeared, then click Quick Export and choose the excel file.
Territory Manager – Maintenance > look up tables > Territory Manager

How to Import This Data to Curve

To access our custom importer, go to Settings > Imports. You can create a new Import via the + Create button on the top right of this page.

1. Setup

Name the Import for your own reference & select the “Counterpoint Publishing” option.

2. Files

At this step, you will be asked to attach the 6 different files which you exported from your Counterpoint system.

As a guideline, examples of the 6 export files for both the Master & Publishing export from Counterpoint can be downloaded here: Counterpoint-Export-Examples.zip

3. Mapping

On this tab you will map certain unique Counterpoint values (displayed on the right side of your screen) to your Curve configurations (selectable from the menus on the left). You will be asked to map Territory Groups, Capacities, Societies & Rates. If the appropriate Curve value is not available you may create additional options via the Settings page.

Complete

Once you hit the Ingest button on the final tab your import will start processing & your Payees, Contracts, and Works will begin populating.
